Academic Hall, dedicated in 2005 and home to the departments of Education and Psychology, Graduate and Professional Studies, and Student Academic Support Services, will be officially named Merritt Hall in memory of Leroy Merritt, Class of 1952, at a campus ceremony on 11 am, Saturday, May 4 during Reunion Weekend.

Enhancing student life at our College, the alma mater he loved, inspired Mr. Merritt to help fund the construction of the Merritt Fitness Center dedicated in 2007, and later to pledge $5 million, intended to motivate alumni and friends to fund renovations to student residence halls and additional athletic facilities as part of the Carpe Diem Campaign for McDaniel.

Sadly, Mr. Merritt passed away January 25, 2010, but his legacy lives on and the Board of Trustees approved the naming of this building in his memory.
